Default Clevite

For my engine rebuilt, I plan to over bore .5 mm, and use CAT connecting rods, but for cpnnecting rod bearings, main bearings, and thrust washers, I want to go with clevite, my question is, standard size would apply to me keeping m crank the same size, correct? Because I don't plan on grinding my crank or anything stupid. Just making sure standard size is what I want.

Unless there has been machine work done to the crank, you should use standard size bearings. Has the engine ever been rebuilt before? If you're not 100% sure, don't order the bearings until you open it up. In fact I wouldn't order the bearings until I had a look at the crank any way. Once you have the bearings out look at the back of them. If they're oversized they will be marked usually with a 10 or 20. If they are marked and you are not doing any work to the crank, replace them with the same oversize. If they are not marked then they are standard size.

Some chick had the car originally, then a guy in Columbus bought it, then me. He didn't do anything to it, and I am pretty sure the chick didn't, because she kept it bone stock. Factory maintenance. That is what I thought though with the different sizes, just wanted to check before I start ordering stuff that I don't need.
